Praying or Playing?

Volume 40

January 2017

Number 1

Beloved:

In the past few months we have witnessed a Political Awakening in our Nation. While we praise The Lord for it we MUST realize it is no substitute for the Spiritual Awakening that we so desperately need in the churches in our country. As one has said: 

The Church has many ORGANIZERS, but few AGONIZERS; many who PLAY but few who PRAY; many RESTERS, but few WRESTLERS; many who are ENTERPRISING, but few who are INTERCEDING. People who are NOT PRAYING are PLAYING!'

"Two prerequisites of dynamic CHRISTIAN LIVING are VISION and PASSION, and both of these are generated in the PRAYER CLOSET. The ministry of PREACHING is open to a FEW. The ministry of PRAYING is open to EVERY CHILD OF GOD. Don’t mistake ACTION for UNCTION, COMMOTION for CREATION, and RATTLES for REVIVALS. The secret of Praying is PRAYING in SECRET.  A WORLDLY Christian will stop PRAYING and a PRAYING Christian will stop WORLDLINESS.”   (Author Unknown)

All who are SERIOUS about CHURCH LIFE in TODAY’S CHURCH realize that SHE IS WITHOUT POWER. And the REASON for HER LACK OF POWER is HER PRAYERLESSNESS. NO CHURCH, as well as NO CHRISTIAN, is GREATER than HIS or HER PRAYER LIFE!

PRAYER, in the SPIRITUAL LIFE, is as NECESSARY as OXYGEN in the PHYSICAL LIFE! To try to do THE WORK OF THE CHURCH WITHOUT PRAYER is like trying to go to THE MOON ON A SKATEBOARD! Simply put, IT CANNOT BE DONE!

THANK YOU dear ones for YOUR FAITHFULNESS. I love YOU dearly in our LORD JESUS

Now a Word from HIS WORD: “And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness”--Acts 4:31 (KJV)
